Week 7: at Oakland Raiders

All RB vs OAK

FBG says: Good matchup. The Chiefs after a strong week the first five games, they finally showed a weakness in this game as they ran the ball just 15 times in this game after largely abandoning the run after falling behind early. This has been a trend for the Chiefs this season as most of their success rushing the ball has happened in the second half as Kareem Hunt is averaging 7.2 yards per carry in the second half and just 4.0 yards per carry in the first half. The offensive line for the Chiefs has been strong on the tackles but has really struggled up the middle particularly for guards Cam Erving and Bryan Witzmann who have both struggled so far this season. The Raiders so far this season have struggled a little bit against the run allowing 117 yards per game to opponents rushing and most recently struggled last week defending Melvin Gordon through both the run game and the passing game. Over the last three games, they have allowed 143 yards rushing twice and then last week did improve to only allow 80 yards total rushing, but they are still allowing 122 yards per game over the last three weeks. The Raiders did make an upgrade at linebacker picking up Navorro Bowman who while he has struggled this year particularly in pass coverage, he is still a good run defender and should help improve this defense this week.
